Cool blues are always a refreshing color palette when it comes to summer decorating. As part of the summer edition of Seasons of Home, I’m sharing a very simple tutorial on how you can create a summer coastal centerpiece in just a few minutes. Seasons of Home is a group of bloggers who share seasonal ideas throughout the year. Be sure to visit the other ladies listed at the end of this post for even more summer inspiration. And now, here’s the simple instructions for creating your own summer coastal centerpiece.
For starters, I took a stretch of turquoise filato paper and then layered a strip of white burlap ribbon on top. Filato paper is great for tabletops because it’s waterproof.
It’s actually made from plastic not paper. This means the color doesn’t run onto your table if it gets wet. Perfect if you have small children!
They’re priced at $7.99 and was told they go on sale for half price every other week.
I plan to use the hurricanes at Christmas time, too.
I added blue and white baker’s twine with an anchor medallion to the candle.
You can use a bamboo skewer to move them around after you drop them onto the sand.
To continue the beachy theme, I added a few aqua bottles to my ironstone pitcher display.
I hope you’re enjoying your summer. Hard to believe it’s already mid-July!
